Audiometry baseline testing is a process that Audiometrists use to determine how well an individual’s hearing can function. Audiometric tests are used to identify the type and degree of hearing loss, assess changes in hearing ability over time, manage noise exposure or ototoxic drug exposure, diagnose disorders such as acoustic neuroma and Meniere’s disease. Audiometers are devices that measure audition performance on various frequencies. Audiologists administer audiograms by asking individuals to repeat words or sentences with increasing intensity until they cannot hear them anymore. Audiograms show whether you have normal, mild, moderate, or severe hearing loss based on your threshold for what level sounds must reach before you can detect them (the lowest sound level at which you can hear the sounds). Audiologists use audiograms to diagnose hearing loss and conduct follow-up testing after treatment.
